Introduction is WAY too long

I understand this is intended to introduce a language learning system. The description and specifics take up most of this brief sample though, and doesn't provide much time for the actual sample lesson. The intro says it's good to allow 45 minutes per lesson, yet this entire sample track itself is far less than that in duration and only the last 5-7 minutes seems to be actual content outside the introduction. I am trialling a few different language learning systems right now, as I am a serious genealogical hobbyist looking at turning pro, and I need to beef up my scanty knowledge of a handful of specific languages in order to do that - Polish being one of them. I was trained as an Arabic military linguist in a total immersion school with native speaking instructors for 63 weeks. Prior to that, I lived in Spain for a time and had learned Spanish through a combination of standard classroom instruction in school and total immersion summer language camp. (I later became a camp counselor at this same language camp.) I am no stranger to various types of language instruction, from the methods described above, to reading and studying ancient Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, and even reading and then (shudder) reading aloud passages in Old and Middle English. That's the place I was coming from when I started this audio. I have also seen folks using Rosetta Stone with some success, though I have not tried it personally. I try to set much of this aside and consider how audiobooks come across to the more typical listener who might not have a comparable background as I do, though. Even doing that, the ratio of introduction to actual material is extremely frustrating. I think that shortening the instruction section and noting that a more detailed description of the learning system is available as a PDF in the Audible library (I have seen other books with single page or 2-3 page PDFs before, so no big deal there) would be plenty sufficient. Provide a bit more content or examples of how the system works. It doesn't have to be consecutive lessons; jump around some if the goal is to tantalize and not give away the full content. But at least give enough exposure to the actual system to let the listener more confidently decide if the system used will work for them. I have four other languages besides Polish to check out. I will be trying other learning systems for those. I have those intros in this method, but if I find more content and less talk (aside from the absolute necessities about the structure of the teaching) in those, I will be returning all of this style of instruction. My time, as is everyone's, is valuable, and I do not relish the thought of spending over an hour (combined across all my target languages) listening to an in-depth explanation of HOW I will be doing something rather than actually DOING it when the majority of the detail could be put in a PDF and the audio portion limited to the key points required to gain benefit from the lesson structure. From my very untrained ear for Polish (I could make a better assessment if it were German, Icelandic, or Norwegian), the speakers do a good job in careful enunciation and clear differentiation between similar-sounding letters. The pace I heard here in the actual lesson portion was appropriate and relatively easy to keep up with. Language speaker performances were definitely good. Just too much beginning "fluff" that didn't really need to be there in that format and in that duration.

Slow pace course, correct pronunciation

People with no knowledge of Polish language may benefit from it because the phrases are being repeated many times through out the lessons. The pronunciation is clear and correct. For those who would like to develop further I would not recommend that course. It's for absolute beginners and even the last chapter will take you no further if you are intermediate. For me the course was too slow and repetitive.
